A Delightful Dip

Bee In Heaven

Life can be full of natural delights. A bright moon on a clear crisp evening, a favourite flower in full bloom, or for this bee a delightful dip into the blooming eucalyptus silver princess.

What’s your delight? What part of nature do you love dipping into?

Memorable Moon


Each day is sprinkled with memorable moments: a stranger’s smile, a child’s wonder, a favourite flower, or, looking up, a magnificent moon. It’s all there. All waiting to be appreciated.

It’s amazing what thoughts come to mind while pottering about in the garden.
